A new focus/new game plan!

  • Posted on February 14, 2013 at 8:25 am

You all have read me write over and over about goals and what gb and I are trying to accomplish.  We both struggle with the scale, her maybe not as much cause she weigh’s at the gym.  She can go a day or so without weighing and not go crazy.  It seems that we have both been in a slump.  Quite frankly, I don’t think we have been as funny and I am certain our lack of humor has been a pure bummer for other Fitness19 members!  Honestly, I’m pretty sure they are glad we have shut the hell up!  Anyway, I can tell you for a fact that our focus on meeting a number has caused our slump.  I’ve felt fine, felt like I was doing great – stepped on that scale yesterday and huge change.  T could see it in my face.  Last night gb text me and said she just wasn’t up for this constant food battle anymore.  She feels great where she is now and just wants to workout and tone.  We went back and forth and ultimately decided that we are both at a place where exercise should be our focus, not weight loss.  We both are setting numbers that are just not realistic!  We are sabotaging ourselves!  I can’t stress enough to you all to back away from the number and the scale.  Please know that I don’t have this mastered but this is what I am realizing.  I know T you’ve told me this over and over.

So I confess I haven’t been realistic, we both have been trying to reach something that is just not practical.  So don’t make this mistake!  I’ve told you all to set a reasonable goal, please take this advice.  It’s turmoil otherwise.  I will never have this lifestyle change mastered!  I am and will probably always be a work in progress.  Just sharing what I’ve done, what work’s, and what I realize doesn’t.

    I’m glad Jen. So many of us put so much pressure on ourselves. Trying to be happy with weight, I think it will always plague me. Not sure I’ll ever feel thin enough but trying to re-focus. Hope you are well!
